However, some eye conditions are present from birth, or develop at a very young age, and to successfully correct them they have to be picked up early. There are other, thankfully, rare but serious childhood conditions that an eye exam will pick up. It is obvious that good eye health is vital if children are going to develop normally, and we have special tests even for testing babies. There are picture cards, preferential looking tests, 3D tests and games that tell us if the extra-ocular muscles and vision are developing normally.

These tests are not like adult tests and we don't bore the kids with better 1 or 2″ questions. We are the appointed childrens' optometrist for ten primary schools in the area, so we routinely check the eyes of children from the age of 2 and above.
